lyrics

Way down in the dark part of town
It aint nothing but a senorita
I heard a hey nanny nanny
Go and tell your daddy
I’m the one they’re gonna call your pa

Sun shines by the hole in the wall
Raindrops falling from under her brella
Eyeballs and ghosts in the halls
Blinking at the traffic lights

Each and every drop never stops, till its found its way
Every single beam finds its meaning in another’s open eye
When the roots are by the river home’s a changing place
And the face you see in each is nothing but the face that you deserve

Sticks says “honey I’m home”
To each and every single lady
It makes me laugh and wheeze “God damn”
He’s the youngest oldest man in town
I saw him sitting on a bench
With Tuba Smith, the ambassador of Jackson Square
Playing his horn in the pouring rain
When the lighting strikes

Each and every drop never stops, till its found its way
Every single beam finds its meaning in another’s open eye
When the roots are by the river home’s a changing place
And the face you see in each is nothing but the face that you deserve

But somewhere along the way, that troubadour turned from his path and set sail from the melting pot of New Orleans to begin a journey that would take their sound to new, unchartered territories with influences from around the world. ... more
